I tend to find the clamp lights don't always give the best angle (and if you have a MVB they need to be vertical in case you didn't know that), and they can sometimes slip which is where Ikea ones can be good as although they're just north of £10, they are spring and also have a bolt to help fix them firmly. If there is any way to hang a lamp instead that offers far more options, and I actually have a brooder lamp suspended from a cheap / small camera tripod resting on the support glass at the top of the tank on one setup

Last time I looked in Ikea they only had clamp lamps suitable for low wattages I expect them to become even more rubbishy plasticy stuff once they go all LED.
Swell have proper ones from £9 at the moment http://www.reptiles.swelluk.com/reptile ... 23051.html
